up by 5 points over john mccain. 50%, 45%. a case could be made that mitt romney is doing better than john mccain did. but that might be misleading. the presidential race is going to come down to just a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control

. back in 2008, the obama campaign thought they had a shot at arizona if senator john mccain hat oe of ticket. there is also a open senate seat in the state of arizona that is now in play. outgoing republican senator jon kyl's seat could be turning from red to blue. the republican candidate for senate is congressman jeff flake. he leads democrat challeng richard caona by only one point in a carmona campaign internal poll. now, congressman flake is a typical republican in speaker boehner's failing house of representatives. he wants to repeal obama care, the affordable ce ac he's aia n'gh e-sex marriage, he's choose, and the icing on the cake, he voted for paul ryan's, what some people call, immoral budget that completely guts medicaid and dismantles the social safety net in america. his opponent, former george w. bushurgeon general, richard ons ng oit approach. >> it's reprehensible to think that the contract that we have with our seniors through medicare or soci security is going to be cut. that doesn't make any sense. these are not entitlements. these e, in fact, instments. so i th

'm martha maccallum. the romney campaign is joining this growing chorus of lawmakers. senator john mccain saying the administration's response was inept and ignorant and susan rice blaming it on a spontaneous protest was inexcusable. >> it's either willful ignorance or abysmal ignorance to think people come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and heavy weapons pant attack goes on for hours. bill: both sides are complaining. governor romney's team says the white house is still getting its story mixed up. >> reporter: democrats say republicans are politicizing the tragic attack that cost of life of four americans. the republicans say the white house is cover ugging up the details for political reasons. here is axlerod. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you are the responsible party, when you are the administration and you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believed. >> reporter: actually it was several days after the benghazi attack before the white house called it terrorism and that came aft

like the mccain campaign. more focused on tactics than the overall -- let's just say rovian-type strategy. karl rove had a strategy in 2000 and 2004 before he started, and he stuck with it the entire campaign. i don't see that focus here with romney's top advisers. >> there hasn't been that focus. and i think what's really blindsided the campaign, they're obviously worried about the polls that you just discussed. what's really, really worries them is that the right track number coming out of the convention, the number of people who feel like the country's headed in a better direction, that that number really shot up after the democratic conventions and that they're picking that up in swing states, in a lot of these senate races. and that suggests a mood shift in the electorate that they don't fully understand. they think it has something to do with the convention. maybe a little bit to do with the economy in some of these swing states that the economy's still not good, but there are at least signs of the housing front that it might be getting a little bit better. and now the

palin will do as mccain's running mate in 2012? >> i'm not telling. >> there's talk he'll drop sarah palin in this election. are you going to vote for him then? >> yes. >> bill: here with reaction david webb and from americans for prosperity, the one and only jennifer stefano. i've done on the man on street, and that's the best i've seen. tell me what you think. >> positively breathtaking. the woman who doesn't believe in killing, because believes in torture. amazing. >> bill: they said that obama was a mormon, that romney was a muslim. mccain's running. this one's running. ryan is with the obama thing. >> it's frightening. it's outright frightening. i've got the whole clip, went through 7 minutes, 32 seconds. there's even more of it. what's scary here, sean, is why the tea party took hold and needs to continue to grow. people need to get more involved. if you're that ignorant of issues, the basics, who's running, what year they're running, you become the tool of a political despot. the obama administration will feed you a narrative, which works on these people, and have you vote. >>

mccain ran in the polls. and i do believe it's because of disenchantment with president obama i know a will the of people myself antidotal doesn't do much good here. who they are not sure about romney, that's why i'm saying that the first debate means everything if he can inspire people who are not devoted. 42% devoted to president obama are not going to vote for romney. there is swing area there where if the president comes off weak or flustered. if romney can fluster him. romney is going to pick those up quickly there is much bigger than the first debate. >> i would say president obama is a known quantity. is he probably not going to change people's opinions of him. romney is a little different. even though he has been doing this for years now we have been through a whole series. people didn't watch those. people didn't watch the convention he have a big audience he is the one that needs to make a big impression. >> bill: no doubt. people need to look at the two men on the stage and think gee i can see that other guy as president. he seems okay to me. i think it's more than that. h

survived those primaries and did a pretty good job against john mccain in three tough debates in the financial crisis and some of the big debate in 2008. >> the senator of the foreclosure crisis arguably. that could hurt the president. >> it can, because it's sort of the right climate for mitt romney to take advantage of the president's battle ground, foreclosure of the country. double digit unemployment in the state here. worse than the national average. what the president is trying to do is say look, not just low her expectations from the debate but say he has got a better plan for the future. take a listen. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. the president trying to focus on the future not his record. the past seems to be working in this battleground not by a lot but the real clear politics average of recent polls here in nevada shows the president up 49% to 45% over mitt romney. again, this i

with whatever the hot story of the day. i remember when obama was running against mccain and it seemed like every day i heard about the birth thing. it was terrible. it was just the story of the day. host: you are in missouri. are you seeing a lot of campaign commercials on the air? not for the presidential level? caller: no, very few. i think he has written off misery. even though the women here -- i have not found one democrat. host: besides yourself? caller: that tells me how their mind is. they're not going to a vote for obama, but they're going to vote for romney. i ask this one lady i ride with who said she's not going to vote for president this time. i did not ask her why because i wanted to remain friends. she definitely wanted to vote republican b s rney because of what they will do the social security. i have children and grandchildren and that is the way they are thinking. host: beverly nice to hear from you in misery. up next on the independent line is frank in tulsa, okla. that whenve noticed the commentators for the various media outlets talk about romney or obama that they ge

camp played the race card on bill clinton, on john mccain, on sarah palin. >> on poor girl -- girl dean ferraro. >> this was a quick turn around. i realized it was nothing but racial dem gogery. they can't run on obama's record, they can't dig up divorce files on mitt romney. so what's it going to be? race. so i wanted to get the book out quickly. as a result, the jack flap indicates well, obama doesn't really engage in the race baiting. when i actually got to the end of the book and wrote those, there is a lot more than i thought coming directly from the president. >> steve: chapter 16, the media cry racist in a crowded theater. you have a list, kind of a laundry list of things that if you support a certain thing, the media quick to label you a racist. for instance, if i were opposed to obamacare. >> racist. >> steve: if i joined a tea party? >> yes, definitely racist. >> steve: if you're a republican or support gun rights. >> and the word the. don't forget the word the because fox news contributor allen colmes brought the word the up with me on his radio show. the. if you say the blac

served in the military. john mccain did not do quite as well. when you look at the narrow states come in there. if things get out of whack for the president with military voters and veterans. when we look at hispanic voters, the goal isn't mitt romney doesn't want to win from he just wants to not lose to buy as much. especially in those three states, especially in those states that he won so narrowly last time. megyn: what is the explanation for the favoritism by military veterans for mitt romney? >> one thing i should say that you referenced would be best. it would be the baddest on a pole poll that is constructed in a way that many pollsters would have relied upon. that is not exactly what we expect to see. the president may actually do worse among military voters and even a poll showed. here is the deal. in 2000 and the president was running, he was talking a lot about what he wanted to hear for veterans. people were ready for change. he held onto the timeline in iraq and he brought the troops out, and all of those things. but there is broad dissatisfaction among people who said th
